Editors' Review

+

A good standalone uninstallation application can remove traces of programs that other uninstallers leave behind, and that includes the built-in Windows feature. Advanced Uninstaller Pro is a free tool that not only removes all detectable traces of the programs you uninstall but also automatically cleans traces from the Registry. Its unique installation-monitoring feature automatically or manually tracks what happens to your system when you install or uninstall programs. It not only ensures that all traces of installed programs are removed but also helps diagnose installation problems. Advanced Uninstaller Pro also packs a wide range of system maintenance tools and tweaks.

Advanced Uninstaller Pro's interface has a unique look but familiar functionality, with large buttons on a space-themed background. The program's features are categorized by function, such as General Tools, Registry Tools, and Internet Browser Tools. Some tools show up in more than one heading, such as the Windows Services tool. The main tool, the uninstaller, lists programs alphabetically and by version (32-bit or 64-bit) but not by installation date, version, location, and other headings we're used to seeing in an uninstaller. That's our only complaint, though, since this tool was quick and thorough in its actions. We especially like the built-in Registry scanner and cleaner, which can remove traces of uninstalled programs immediately. We could specify which entries to clean or exclude. We enabled the Installation Monitor Feature and selected automatic monitoring, but we could also track installations manually from Advanced Uninstaller's system tray icon. The feature records exactly what installing a program does to your file system and Registry, and displays it in a log view. Advanced Uninstaller Pro has a full raft of extras, such as a Cookie Manager, Duplicate File tool, Registry Cleaner and Optimizer, Startup Manager, Fonts tools, and much more.

Advanced Uninstaller Pro brings some unique and useful improvements to a simple process that all too often comes up short. You can't depend on Windows to remove all traces of uninstalled programs, but this free toolkit can do the job as well as any tool we've tried. Adding installation date would make it ideal.

"Excellent Uninstaller !"

March 15, 2013  |  By tonester59

 |  Version: Advanced Uninstaller Pro 11.17

Pros

Easy to use with a lot of extra features, but where it really excels is in it's post-uninstall cleanup which is outstanding. Unlike the free version of Revo, it can handle 64 bit programs. I also like the way it usually pauses for the publisher's survey page (when applicable) so I can give them some input. The extra features are icing on the cake and nice to have. On my Win7 64 bit systems, it's worked flawlessly with no problems whatsoever.

Cons

On the program listing, I would like to see the size of the program in addition to it's installation date. ( a minor quibble, for sure.) Also, it will sometimes misidentify a 64 bit program as 32 bit but this has only happened a couple of times. As for the interface, you'll either love it or hate it - it put me off at first, but I soon came to like it.

Summary

It took me a while to warm up to it, but after using it for a while, I've really come to like Advanced Uninstaller Pro and now use it as my primary uninstaller. Highly recommended.

"Truly Advanced!"

March 06, 2013  |  By ok4mi2

 |  Version: Advanced Uninstaller Pro 11.17

Pros

Has many other tools and the uninstaller! One tool, compressing files on your hard drive, etc. worked very well. It was actually their interface and Windows program but I would say their interface enabled it to work better and I would not have even thought to do this otherwise. And more, some I have yet to try.

Cons

I cannot say there are any. On the file compression tool if they could have indicated a total time or time remaining feature I would welcome that. Otherwise, works quickly uninstalling and does a good followup to see if anything left behind after uninstalling the main program.
